Product benefits

The gripper of the double-jointed manipulator arm has a remarkable gripping force and reach. The gripper of the 725 Kobra™ works in parallel and thus enables safe and even as well as careful gripping. The opening width of 20 cm allows users to easily pick up larger objects. Three state-of-the-art HD cameras (tower, mast, grapple) support the execution of manipulation work. Two wide-angle platform cameras (front/rear) ensure unerring navigation.

The 725 Cobra™ has high maneuverability even in rough terrain and can be used in all weather conditions. The vehicle reaches a speed of up to 12.9 km/h and is fully maneuverable even with a large accessory payload - even stairs with an incline can be easily negotiated when loaded.

Operating unit

The control unit of the 725 Kobra™ is a robust touchscreen-based tablet controller (uPoint Multi-Robot Controller) with MPU5 radio/data solution. It allows direct access to the vehicle, its data (sensor values, etc.) and maps to locate the GPS position.

MPU5 Wave Relay® MANET

It can also switch between multiple robotic systems (FirstLook®, Kobra™; and PackBot®) and generate video for evidence collection. The MPU5 allows independent networking with other MPU5 devices that have the same configuration.
